[China] Another Round of Arrests of Dafa Practitioners from the Vicious Forces is Expected Before July 20

According to related news, Jiang Zemin's political machine will begin another round of arrests for Falun Dafa practitioners prior to July 20, the anniversary of the banning of Falun Gong. The practitioners who still have not stepped forward should wake up.

All brainwashing classes in every Beijing district were shut down and practitioners who had been kidnapped into these classes are now detained in Daxing County for grand-scale brainwashing.

[Beijing] Illegal Arrest of Dafa Practitioner Ke Xingguo

After Ke Xingguo escaped from a brainwashing class, he told of his experiences there on the Internet. He told of Jiang Zemin's criminal regime's launching of a new campaign to malevolently assault and slander Falun Dafa. Mr. Ke also exposed the inhumane tortures of Falun Gong practitioners. When Ke Xingguo's daring act was discovered, he became a hunted man and opted instead to wander about as a homeless person.. In order to safeguard Dafa and awaken the duped public, Ke Xingguo clarified the truth, disregarding his own safety. For that great deed he was arrested and illegally detained in Hebei Province's Shenzhou City Detention Center. His treatment in the detention center lacked any kind of human compassion, since Ke Xingguo was beaten to the point of vomiting blood, and his lips had turned purple. However, with his determined righteous thoughts, he did not yield to the vicious forces. He went on a hunger strike to protest this inhuman torture.

We have heard from a reliable source that between July 5 and July 10, Jiang Zemin's criminal regime will hold a court session to illegally bring Ke Xingguo to trial.

[Laishui County, Hebei Province] Jailed Female Dafa Practitioner Liu Jinying Remains Persistent, Despite all Kinds of Tortures

Laishui County court sentenced Female Dafa practitioner Liu Jinying to five years in jail. Her four-months appeal was overruled without benefit of hearing or a trial. The original sentence stands. In early May, she was transferred from the Laishui Detention Center to Taihang Jail and later was transferred yet again, this time to the Second Female Group of Shijiazhuang City's No.2 Jail, for persisting in Fa study and doing Dafa exercises. Because the jail guard confiscated Zhuan Falun and burned Teacher's articles, she went on a hunger strike, and received a 13-day stay in a confinement cell. She suffered severely while in confinement, and was force-fed eight times while her mouth was pried open with steel pliers. Furthermore, the "Strike Hard Agency" officials hit her numerous times with a baton and handcuffed her tightly. She said, "I didn't violate the law, I'm not a criminal!" Almost daily, four common prisoners dragged her outside or into a factory. Her clothes and socks wore out from this dragging, her skin was scratched, and black and purple bruises caused by beatings appeared all over her body. Even so, she still compassionately advised the jail guards and prisoners, and was always validating Dafa.

[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Information from Wuhan City

Female Dafa practitioner Cai Rufen from Xinzhou District was released from the detention center. After her release, through Fa-study, she realized her previous misunderstanding of the Fa and returned to Fa-rectification and cultivation. In the afternoon on Apr. 30, officials from the local police station and her workplace duped her and sent her into a brainwashing class by force. They also told her that if she refused to sign the "guarantee letter," they would detain her forever (This "guarantee letter" is a document which states that a practitioner will no longer practice Falun Dafa, will no longer associate with Falun Dafa practitioners, will not go to Beijing to appeal and will renounce Falun Dafa). She firmly refused to cooperate with the police and got out of the brainwashing class with righteous thoughts. She has now become a homeless person who is wandering about the streets, unable to return to her home or go to work.
